Shopping at full-service grocery stores, farmers markets and cooking at home were positively associated with consumption of daily servings of fresh produce. Shopping at convenience stores was associated with increased consumption of chips, candy and pastries. These findings can inform the design of programmatic interventions to increase fresh fruit and vegetable consumption among residents in low-income urban communities.
